Of late, I have been really obsessed with Kylie Jenner’s nude lip trend and have been trying different lip products with which I can achieve that perfect matte lips look. While there are a ton of matte lipsticks available in the market, I figured there’s nothing that gives a more matte lip than the traditional lip liner pencil. Yes! So, I’m reviewing a lip pencil that I have been using almost every day recently. It’s NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Sand Pink. Read on to know more about it.
Product description: Slim, trim but never prim, our lip pencils come in a variety of dashing shades—from auburn to orange and traffic-stopping red. The buttery, long-wearing lip liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.
Product price: $3.50 (I bought it for INR 350)
My views on NYX Sand Pink Slim Lip Liner Pencil:
Packaging: There is nothing much to say about the packaging. It’s simple and elegant. It looks like most lip pencils do – slim, trim and long. The bottom of the pencil denotes the color of the lip pencil which makes it really easy to spot this in the stash if one has more than one lip pencil. It is sturdy and travel-friendly.
Shade: It is a very beautiful shade of lip pencil. It’s like a tulip pink color. I’m absolutely in love with this Sand Pink lip pencil these days and I’ve been wearing this pretty much every single day since I bought (not kidding). The reason why I like this lip pencil so much is because while most light pink lip products wash me out or don’t show up on my lips at all, this one not only shows up on lips but also hides the pigmentation to a great extent. It’s one of those shades that I can wear for any and every occasion. I’m absolutely obsessed with this one.
Texture: The texture of NYX slim lip pencils is often compared to that of MAC lip liners because these two are similar to a great extent. While MAC lip liners are kind of expensive, these NYX lip liners are available at a quarter of the price of MAC lip liners. Even though the consistency of this lip pencil is on the matte side, the texture is fairly smooth and almost buttery and it glides onto the lips very smoothly and gives a very polished look to the lips. It does not dry out the lips when the lips are fully filled in with this lip pencil alone. The wear time, I’d say is around 4-5 hours when the lip pencil is used only for outlining the lips and it lasts for about 7-8 hours when lips are filled in with this lip pencil alone.
Pros of NYX Sand Pink Slim Lip Liner Pencil:
• Great dupe for MAC lip liner in a similar shade.
• People who like matte lips are going to love this one.
• Hides the pigmentation of my lips when I fill in my lips with this lip pencil.
• Smooth in texture.
• Doesn’t feel drying on the lips even when it is worn as a matte lipstick.
• Fairly long wear time.
• Should suit most skin tones.
• An everyday wear lip shade.
Cons of NYX Sand Pink Slim Lip Liner Pencil:
• I can’t find a single con with this product except for the fact that this is available in India for a slightly expensive price than in the US.
Will I repurchase it/ do I recommend NYX Sand Pink Slim Lip Liner Pencil ?
Truth be told, I bought two of these lip pencils in the same exact shade because I liked it so much, so I’ve already technically re-purchased it. and I recommend this to everyone.
IMBB rating: 4.9/5
Conclusion: It’s a great lip pencil for not only outlining the lips, but also to be worn as a matte lipstick. It does not feel drying/ sticky on the lips and hides the pigmentation of the lips to a great extent. A great product!
